We are at SIGGRAPH 2013

July 23, 2013

So we are a little late in posting. But Raj and I are at SIGGRAPH 2013 in Anaheim, CA. Raj has a full technical paper and an ETech demo on Aireal. The Aireal project is a new low cost, highly scalable haptic technology that delivers expressive tactile sensations in mid air. It is getting some great press, and is a really exciting demo.

Meanwhile, Brett is demoing the IllumiRoom project at ETech.

Lets talk projection, haptics and cool new tech! We will be mostly at our ETech demos all week. Come stop by and say hi!

Eidos – Augmented Reality (not just visuals)

May 6, 2013

Projection mapping is really just a subset of a larger beast called augmented reality. Augmented Reality is the concept of altering our sensory perceptions in some way, usually such that the virtual and physical are combined. Most effort is focused onto augmented our visual perception (e.g. through projection mapping).

Eidos is a super pretty video demonstrating an entire spectrum of augmented sensory perception. Check it out!

IllumiRoom: Peripheral Projected Illusions for Interactive Experiences

January 15, 2013

Hi Internet,

Here is a more ‘researchy’ projection mapping project done by myself, Brett Jones (1/2 of Augmented Engineering).

This proof-of-concept prototype uses a lot of the ideas that we’ve seen in projection mapping. However, it dynamically adapts to the appearance and geometry of the room (captured by Kinect). While the video has a “Hollywood” touch, it shows the actual real-time prototype (no special effects added in post-production).

I can’t go into details yet (more to come at CHI in April).

Here is the official article.

Goofy’s Paint ‘n’ Play House

December 8, 2012

Here are a couple videos out of Disney Tokyo (one looks like the official release and the other is a first person view):

A couple of the folks on this piece were also involved with “The Legend of Jack Sparrow” (which if you haven’t seen, hit the jump, it’s very cool). Yet another congrats on the awesome stuff coming out Imagineering!

Walt Disney Projection Mapping Experience

December 5, 2012

Walt Disney World just opened “The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow.” This is definitely the most elaborate and immersive projection mapping experience in a theme park.

(We used to work at Walt Disney Imagineering with the team that pulled this off. Congrats guys, it looks great.)

Projection Mapping Central

November 27, 2012

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new website for the projection mapping community, Projection Mapping Central. It is a free community resource for all things related to projection mapping. Projection Mapping Central is a compendium of information about projection mapping software, hardware, tutorials, design companies, festivals and more.

It is a place where advertisers and event organizers can find a firm to make their dreams a reality. It is a place where a beginner can figure out how to “map”, or an expert can keep up to date with the latest tools.

If you are an artist, programmer, advertiser or event organizer, welcome.
